Following a rough couple of weeks with his arrest and bail being denied, making him and other NEFF party members stay behind bars, Amushelelo shared a few powerful words about human rights. Highlighting what he and others are fighting for.

“Why should some people walk barefoot, so that others can travel in luxurious cars? Why should some live for thirty-five years so that others can live for seventy years? Why must some be miserably poor while others are hugely rich?

"I speak on behalf of the children in the world that have no bread to eat, I speak on behalf of the sick who have no medicine. I speak on behalf of those whose rights to life and human dignity have been denied.”

After Michael Amushelelo and Dimbulukeni Nauyoma were reportedly denied bail, their supporters flooded the streets saying they will stop operations in China Town.

The Namibian Sun reported at the time why their bail application got denied, "The bail application by AR activist Dimbulukeni Nauyoma and NEFF commissar Michael Amushelelo was dismissed in court this morning. The court found the state to have a strong case against the pair, emanating from their alleged threats to close & burn down Chinatown.

But their lawyers are working hard to have the decision overturned at the high court, "Lawyers Kadhila Amoomo & Nambili Mhata say they'll appeal Magistrate Kwizi Masule's dismissal of their clients' bail applications in the High Court within 14 days. As matters stand, Dimbulukeni Nauyoma & Michael Amushelelo will remain in custody till their trial starts."

When he posted this, people were left to think that he is out of prison with some pledging their support for the activist. Michael has painted himself as a person who wants to fight for the rights of people and has succeeded in gaining support from people.

Supporters flooded his comments section with words of support.

"Well said our resources have been deployed... I say enough is enough. I'm willing to follow you and influence others to follow you too.. amantla."

"I am so sorry you guys...sorry that our people have to even have to fight against its' own people. Our government is brainwashed & it brainwashes those in key positions like the police..I am so sorry Namibia." 

"Sometimes all we need to do as a nation is to hold our peace, the truth is going to come out one day. There comes a time that true Justice doesn't come from the courts of law." 

"What does it solve to arrest Amushelelo if your citizens are crying for help? What exactly is the end goal here? There should be no question on whether as young leaders we support a fellow youth, Amushe is one of us and we will stand by him! Address the root cause; UNEMPLOYMENT!"
